Rethinking rescue dogs
- Lulu and Lolly
It's time for a Christmas episode again. In this episode we have an interview with a woman who's doing her best to change the way we talk and think about rescue dogs.
Cynthia Miller shares her life with two beautiful Maltese dogs, Lulu and Lolly, and she and the girls do a lot of work to raise money for dogs who really need help. Cynthia (and husband Dean) wrote Rescue Dog Rock, which you can see at Lulu and Lolly's website. The video that accompanies the song may well make you think again about rescue dogs. Lulu and Lolly have their own calendar which is helping raise money for charity. They also have a blog, and their own unique career ambitions.
To have your preconceptions challenged, listen to Cynthia - her enthusiasm is infectious.
- Beverley Cuddy
It may be Christmas but we can't rustle up a Fairy Godmother. We can do the next best thing though - that's the Furry
Godmother, Dogs Today editor, Beverley Cuddy.
Beverley talks about a charity that's close to her heart - Tailwaggers. The charity was once incredibly popular in the UK, but has declined in recent years. Beverley is helping to ensure the charity's future.
It may not be a household name, and it may not change the world - but Tailwaggers can and does change people's and dogs' lives for the better. Beverley gives some heart-warming examples of people who have turned to Tailwaggers and found solutions to their problems.
We have a special two minute fiction feature - Christmas Shopping. Why buy things for a dog you haven't got? And our quotes between items are a dog's rules for Christmas. So listen online, or take us with you on your mp3, but one way or another, enjoy a merry Christmas with DogCast Radio.
